Ayton's Studio

Shipquay Place, Londonderry

Thank you to Ian Bartlett for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above.

Ian writes:

"Ayton was operating from Shipquay Place, Londonderry, by 1884.

The studio building still exists and is used as offices. A local developer has bought the site and the buildings will become a hotel & restaurant. The exterior will be retained and the glass loft that was his studio will be restored."

Here is an early view of the studio:

Here is a Valentine postcard from the early 1900s, showing the same building while it was still Ayton's studio. The Ayton name appears prominently on the front of the building:
